|hey! I think I have the same thing. A few months ago I started getting bits of food --especially things like bits of peanuts and bits of tortilla chips stuck in some sort of flap at the back of my throat. I don't choke on the stuff, but it's really annoying--it's like a constant low level "something's caught in my throat" feeling. If I reach way back in there while shining a flashlight into a mirror, I can get the stuff out--and it always amazes me how big the stuff is. No tuna slivers though. I was thinking maybe it had something to do with tonsils (?) I never had mine taken out...Did you?

|My wife was in a coma four months ago, and slowly went back to solid food two months ago. She chews her food ~20 times before swallowing, but every so often food gets stuck at the top of her throat. She can still breath but cannot swallow anything else.
She wants to know how to get it back out. She tries to vomit it out, but it often takes 5-6 hours sometimes to get it out. She does not want to go to an ENT as she does not feel it will help. Does anyone know anything that may get easily it out.
